How to change your Scooter Gear Oil

This is a walk-through of how to change the Gear Oil on pretty much any 50cc Chinese scooter. This particular one is a TaoTao ATM50 gas street legal scooter.



Thank you

Hi. I have few questions. I have buy a new TVS Jupiter BS4 gearless scooter and have runned 650 Kms.

Q1. Which transmission/gear oil brand with specification should I used for my TVS Jupiter?

Q2. Is it safe to use TVS Jupiter’s engine oil into Transmission as a Transmission/Gear oil ?
Both TVS Jupiter Manual and service centre guys recommended to use only the TVS TRU4 Premium Semi-Synthetic engine oil (SAE-10W30 API-SL, JASO-MA2) into the transmission as a gear oil.

But according to outside mechanic and also online forums it is recommended to use SAE-90 Gear oil for Transmission of gearless scooters. What should I do?

Q3. I feel some metal friction sound coming from gears of rear tyres at speed of 40 to 60kmph mostly with pillion or sometimes without pillion. Jupiter run 650 kms and also 1st service is done few days ago. They used the engine oil into the transmission as a gear oil. They said that this problem will gone after 5000kms. But I don’t think so.
Why I got this problem and what is the solution?

Or if you want the gearbox to last for 50 years just buy 1 ltr of EP80 gear oil and pour half a can of STP oil additive into the EP80 mix it measure out what you need pour into a container and and sell it to somebody else !
